We made some search improvements too. Links no longer show up as subs and vice versa. Also sub search on /subs finds more as it no longer uses exact matching.

Oh right my bad, I'll add that stuff to the main announcement. I knew I was forgetting something.

Nice! One of the best features of Voat.

Are we gonna have this for images too?

[–]d3rr 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

OGG is retired.

OPUS replaced Ogg Vorbis and Speex.

https://www.opus-codec.org/

also

HEVC : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Efficiency_Video_Coding

x265 : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X265

and applied to images

HEIF : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Efficiency_Image_File_Format

BPG (JPG replacement) : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Better_Portable_Graphics

To my knowledge these are the best and latest, open, and deserving of promotion and implementation if possible.

We can really only do what browsers support and most of them claim to support very few file formats. If you want to dig into this, I can give you the list of extensions we added support for and you can find out if we are missing any.

[–]JasonCarswell 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (5 children)

Just these ones concern me now.

I don't even use these yet as I don't create a lot of content yet. Presently I just do SVG and PNG images and JPG when I need a slightly compressed banner. HEIF would be neat though, assuming my Photoshop or GIMP has it, but as you said, pointless if no one else uses it.

[–]d3rr 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

It looks like there is OPUS and HEVC/H.265 support in some browsers! Jason for the technical win, consider it done. https://github.com/libertysoft3/saidit/issues/25

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

For the bigger win - the users of SaidIt now have the latest and greatest!

Cause d3rr is the man!

VLC and MPC-HC and everyone has had HEVC for years and I'm honestly bummed that RARBG, YIFY, etc don't embrace x265 for all this time to save so much space and bandwidth. I'm guessing OPUS has been in use for a while but I don't really deal exclusively with audio much beyond FLACs.

However I have my YouTube-DLG configured to download 3 files for each video - the maxres JPG thumbnail, the video usually as WEBM/MKV/MPA/MP4 and the OPUS audio file. If there was a setting I'd also scrape the page for more information, show notes, links, stats, etc.

Since somebody (not sure who) was kind enough to do the unacknowledged work of separating church and state <audio> and <video>, I added your filetypes. (I think; correct me if I'm wrong.) Wanna see the code? #27

Yeehaw nice work man.

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I kinda like some of those cartoons. But this one was spectacular.

I kinda like some of the available audio video formats. But these are spectacular! We're bleeding edge man!

I hate running into WEBM and WEBP now. And I have yet to even see a single HEIF or BPG but I want to. If it's not installed don't worry or hurry, but maybe eventually.

Maybe tomorrow I'll start testing things. I haven't even tried using SVG's yet. Shame on me after all my whining for them.

Not ideal for now but should be in the future.

VERY COOL! Worthy of a post!

Norway, I don't trust the other country (the government, not the people).

[–]magnora7[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

But with how Sweden and the surrounding area is having problems, I fear Norway might have problems as well. But yes I probably would trust norway slightly more, but Switzerland has a proven track record of server security/privacy as well. The elite from across the world hide their data and money there for a reason.

I love the expandos. I wouldn't have known to click on them. They need a colour at least. Maybe icons.

You can play them all at once.

I like that the Earth is spinning the correct direction.

Thanks for the wiki link.

Maybe add a pyramid link? My redesigns are good but not great yet as they need a white background rather than transparency. You or I could do that.

Excited about your future plans, even if I won't be using most. It's thrilling to watch your progress.

Regarding the server...

Maybe Cleeng (based in the Netherlands) can help you find something secure, being about security, though in a different field ( https://saidit.net/s/DecentralizeAllThings/wiki/index#wiki_paywall_alternatives_list ) or I could try asking Ryan Dawson on Discord what servers he uses if you want.

Also, lemme know if you want another server, maybe for chat or as backup in Canada. I submitted some questions to a local group, got an email they're working on a response, and haven't heard back yet. I suspect they may have passed it to lawyers to review. Either that or they thought I was just some crazy guy low priority.

Yeah another color isn't a bad idea, we could do that.

Made edits above.

Slightly off topic: Is title editing going to get implemented? I always found it strange how the software never supported it natively by default?

[–]magnora7[S] 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (6 children)

No, title edits are not allowed. That would mean someone could get something upvoted to the front page, then drastically change it, making people look like they agree with something they didn't vote on.

[–]HorseMeat 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (5 children)

Does the codebase not support some kind of edit history? Editing titles is an ideal feature for clumsy folks like myself who make basic typing mistakes often.

[–]magnora7[S] 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

No there's no support for that feature in the codebase. The best way is to add flair to the post title to do any corrections, that's usually what's done on reddit. That way nothing is removed, only more added to further explain or clarify

[–]HorseMeat 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

Seems like more effort than it's worth. Don't you have to setup flairs for each individual sub?

[–]magnora7[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Yeah it's a per-sub setting. It'd be cool if they were site-wide. It's a lot less effort than building an alternate title system!

[–]HorseMeat 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Eh! Or we could go back to basics and express our fudge ups using the bold edit line in the contents of the post. That's what Reddit restorts to when customizable flairs are not available to the public for certain subs.

I do however think a slightly improved title system would be a grand addition to the site in the distant future.

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Good to know.

[–]Yhvr 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

They might need it for this title...

[–]HorseMeat 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

How come?

They support the file types "Naively".
